No simpler way in pine, but sendmail does it for us just fine. Configure
pine to deliver mail to sendmail on localhost, and read the Mail-Queue
mini howto, which will be wherever debian keeps its mini howto's. And
then, to send your mails whenever you connect, put a entry "sendmail
-q" in your ip-up.local , wherever debian keeps that too.
